Organizer

Dialogue Institute (Formerly known as Institute of Interfaith Dialog- IID)

Dialogue Institute of the Southwest aims to promote mutual understanding, respect and cooperation among people of diverse faiths and cultures by creating opportunities for direct communication and meaningful shared experiences. 


Dialogue Institute grew out of the need to address the question, “How can citizens of the world live in peace and harmony?” The Institute was established in 2002 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. 


Many participants of the Institute’s activities are inspired by the discourse and pioneering dialogue initiatives of the Turkish Muslim scholar, writer and educator Fethullah Gulen. Headquartered in Houston, the Dialogue Institute serves in Texas, Mississippi, Arkansas, Kansas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico.
